I have not had any. What kind of problems are you thinking or anticipating.

not really anticipating any, just wasn't sure about pork and venison cooling in the same small box. I usuall have a little ice/blood pool near the drain hole so a small amount of meat will be soaking in pig/deer blood mix.

It's perfectly fine unless one of them hasn't gotten their cootie shots yet.

I don't see a problem with it, although I never mix any meat together until I'm processing it for hamburger or such. It's just something I don't do, that's all.

I've done it without any complaints but I'm pretty anal about making sure the meat is as clean as possible before it goes into the ice chest

Just make sure you cook the venison above 150 degrees if you do it in case there is contamination from Trichinosis from the pork.

Personally I'd keep venison backstrap & tenderloins separate (since we grill those medium-rare).

Rest is going to be grinded together raw anyway (pork & venison // sausage) and/or cooked well ....

Throw some beer cans in there to separate them.

I do it all the time. Just make sure the meat is clean and wash off any 'poo' or body juices
